[Ed. – Trump is standing in the way of such honest, unbiased reporting.]
ABC, CBS and NBC evening shows lavished 18 times more coverage Wednesday and Thursday on Rep. Chris Collins’ scandal than they gave to the crimes of former Reps. Corrine Brown (D-Fla.) and Chaka Fattah (D-Pa.).
Collins (pictured above left) was arrested Wednesday on insider trading charges, while Brown (pictured above right) was found guilty in 2016 on 22 felony fraud charges. Fattah was convicted on racketeering, fraud, and other corruption charges, also in 2016, according to a report from Media Research Center’s (MRC) NewsBusters.
“It’s quite the double standard and another case of where if liberals didn’t have double standards, they would have no standards,” Curtis Houck, MRC’s managing editor, told LifeZette. “The numbers don’t lie, and these numbers show the stunning lack of objectivity by the liberal media.”
Collins turned himself in Wednesday after facing charges of lying to the FBI, as well as insider trading charges for allegedly informing his son, Cameron, about a nonpublic drug trial failure. This knowledge allowed the two men to circumvent huge losses when the drug manufacturer’s stock plummeted.
